How to Find the Right Frame

by Finest Glasses Finest Glasses

Some people don't have a hard time finding a frame they like, but they have a hard time finding a frame they like and that suits well. There is a varied range of men and women prescription glasses but the deal is to choose the right frame. Here are the 3 frame areas that you need to pay attention to for proper fit.


·         Bridge

The bridge, also known as DBL (Distance Between Lens), is the first thing you should look at since this is the part of the frame most responsible for holding the frame and keeping it in place. If the frame has adjustable nose pads, the immediate fit is not important since they can still be narrower or wider.

If there are no adjustable nose pads, it's very important to get the fit correct from the start. Using this as a reference to:

1.       Look for a "saddle" fit: even distribution of the bridge frames around the bridge of your nose.

2.       Gaps/spaces on the sides mean that too much weight is being put at the top of the nose.

3.       A small amount of room is ok at the top of the bridge


·         Frame Width

The width of the frame is almost as critical as the bridge fit, but there's a little more space to deal with. The trick is to minimize the amount of space between your temple and the frame weapons. Too much room in this area and frames may be too large to fit comfortably, and too little space may put undesired pressure that may lead to discomfort. If you can fit your index finger between the frame and the temples, the glasses are probably too big.

There are exceptions to this rule, as there are some people, particularly young children, who have a diamond-shaped head, which means that the head is a little wider above the ear than the temple region. 

 

·         Temple Length/Type

The length of the temple is often ignored, but it is very significant. If the temple is too short, it cannot be bent down behind the ears properly to prevent the frames from falling and moving about. Most adult frames should have a temple length of between 140-150 mm. When bent, the end of the temple should be about halfway down the back of the ear. Some temple styles are not bendable. Rather, they are straight and bowed.
